Stabilizing Marginal Soils with Geofibers & Synthetic Fluid

The objectives of this project are to: (1) provide design guidelines, which will address the use of the newly introduced non-traditional soil improvement technology with soils encountered particularly in Western and Northwestern Alaska. Providing such design guidelines will eliminate the need for project-specific testing, and thus, reduce the overall project costs, (2) evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of the technology for typical Alaskan soils, and (3) gain an in-depth understanding of the improvement mechanism through laboratory and field tests.
